About this event
The London Strong Foundations Grants, launched by Sir Robert McAlpine, are looking to support projects that drive positive change and generate impact in their local communities.
Rather than applying direct to the funder, applications should be made through the ActionFunder platform. On ActionFunder you apply to funds by creating projects. These are automatically submitted to all relevant funds on the platform
In this session we will be hearing from the ActionFunder team to find out:
- What sort of projects the funder is looking to support
- How to set up an ActionFunder account
- How you can maximise your chance of success
You will also have a chance to ask your questions, and network with other organisations.
If you are unable to attend, but have a question you would like to ask, please let us know at email@example.com.
